[ male announcer ] taste it and describe the indescribable. could've had a v8. >>> welcome .ouse speaker boehner will hold a news conference, the first since president obama's re-election and issued a statement saying if there's a mandate, it is a mandat

. >> chris van hollen, a member of the supercommittee on deficit reduction. he knows a lot. good to see you in person. >> it's great to be here. >> we're all running on fumes and now, we have to get on those fumes and solve this problem because the market is right. it is a crisis and it has to be dealt with. what i don't understand is, a little change in the senate, but -- why is it going to happen now. >> first of all, a lot of the republicans in congress have been focused primarily, maybe we can move beyond that objective. the second is the structure of the situation. the cliff creates big risks, also, opportunities. because not resolving the fiscal cliff will create problems for the country. we need to focus on two things. we need to accelerate the recovery and we need to act now to come up with a balanced, long-term plan to reduce the deficit. >> obviously, those are the, how we do that is the big question. now, john boehner had something to say today about revenue. by revenue, everybody, we're talking about, well, that's the whole point. there's different things we could be talking abo
van hollen what the president's role would be on the fiscal cliff. >> that remains to be seen exactly who will be the negotiate or negotiators. the white house has to be engaged. the president will make clear as he did in his acceptance speech last night we need to compromise. i think the president will be directly involved. >> directly involved but not clear what his role would be. will the president take the lead? here's the thing. americans want answers soon. today i overheard a major democratic fundraiser and lobbyist ben barnes saying this to a high ranking member of leadership. i'll tell you we better be in a hurry. i don't think the american people has the patience. business doesn't have the patience. american express wrote in its latest quarterly report in the absence of legislative action there continues to be growing concerns about potential impact of fiscal cliff arising from scheduled federal spending cuts and tax increases set for the end of 2012. well they better hurry up because in nine days president obama is going to go turnovers asia with stops in thailand, myanmar a
ladder, and they are trying to read the tea leaves. chris van hollen was asked, and he said he did not know. you have some steny hoyer, jim cliburn, and they're not going anywhere. if nancy pelosi decides that she's going to step aside, we will seek a flurry of activity with chris van hollen, and perhaps steny hoyer and james clyburn. host: could we see members of congress moving to the white house? that is one to watch, especially in the house. it is trickier in the sand ridge in the senate. -- in the senate. you have to be cognizant of that. in the house, the minority, i think you'll see at least a couple of house democrats that joined obama's team. host: that question -- raises questions about whether john kerry could be picked as secretary of state. guest: if john kerry is collected, you have an election, and who would run for that seat? scott brown. host: "christian science monitor" headline -- "paul ryan returns to house -- is he ready for a bigger role in the gop?" guest: there is speculation that he is interested in staying on. he appears to be one of the few willing to tak
? >> right now, outside of hoyer, the person a generous the more -- most chatter is chris van hollen, representative from maryland, a democrat. paul ryan's foil on the budget committee in the house. again, a young, sort of take charge, a charismatic leader. he raised a lot of money. he ran the democratic congressional campaign committee for two cycles. so, he has a lot of pole. complicated a little bit by the fact that he and hoyer our friends and they represent the same state and run in the same circles. he was the assistant to the speaker in nancy pelosi's last term as speaker. that seems to be the person who bubbles to the top the most. and a question about what debbie wasserman schultz will do. democratic committee chairman. no one does that job to long. she is looking at a way to leadership -- i hate to use terms like the smart money, but the smart money seems to be if pelosi wants to know if a successor and get behind somebody, it would be chris van hollen. >> that shakes. drama makes what is going on in the senate look tame by comparison. what is the light of the land on the s
. larry summers said he thought we should keep the payroll tax cut as a stimulus measure. chris van hollen made similar comments. it is a little bit influx as to what will happen. host: it was designed as a temporary cut to boost the economy. it increased take-home pay an average of $1,000 to $1800 per worker. here is a chart from "mondey' magazine. host: prio to december, 2010, that's what everybody was paying. has been proven this was stimulus toward the economy? asest: i didn't know it w proven. i think economists believe it does help boost the economy a little bit. host: we want to put the numbers on the screen if you like to participate in the discussion with the so-called fiscal cliff and the payroll tax cut specifically. 202-585-3880 for democrats. 202-585-3881 for republicans. you can e-mail us or post a twitter comment at twitter.com/cspanwj. going back to the origins of this idea. who developed it? did the republicans resisted at first? guest: there was a tax credit with a similar targets that obama was a champion of in the 2009 stimulus bill. he wanted to continue that. republic
annual meeting. three panels. first, house budget committee ranking member chris van hollen talks about the plan see endorses in dealing with the federal deficit. then, treasury secretary tim geithner talks about the so- called fiscal clef and potential tax hikes and spending cuts. that is followed by kent conrad with negotiations on the fiscal cliff. >> c-span invites middle and high school students to send a message to the president through a short video. let president obama know what is the most important issue peak -- should consider in 2013 for a chance to win the grant -- grand prize of $5,000. open to students grades 6 through 12. the deadline is january 18, 2013. for complete details and rules, go online to studentcam.org./ the "wall street cuts" ceo council is -- wall street journal ceo council is hosting its annual discussion about the so-called fiscal cliff were automatic cuts will take place unless congress acts. chris van hollen indorse is a deficit package. this is 30 minutes. >> thank you. it is great to have you here. we have had people for the last 24 hours giving their
the conversation. >> let's talk about that issue allen brought up. i had representative chris van hollen on here yesterday. what about slowly raising the age from the future. getting it into legislation now. people are living longer, the game has changed in terms of this dynamic and the numbers and framework are quite old. he said no way. i will not consider that. what about means testing? what about people who have enough money to not need these benefits? should democrats be open to those two ideas? >> i think they should. certainly raising the age and raising the amount of money past which you contribute to social security. they could raise that. those are good ideas. i don't agree with van hollen on that. >> if you curtail spending people will get less stuff. it will affect the beneficiaries. reform is a cut. let's not lie. these programs are unsustainable. better tell the truth now. >> you can't say the republicans care about deficit reduction if they are not look at ways to enhance revenue. that conversation is over. the republican leader was holding the line on that. >> they could have neg
chatter in terms of being a successor is chris van hollen who's a representative from maryland, a democrat. he is paul ryan's foil in on the budget committee in the house. again, a very young sort of take charge, charismatic leader, raised a lot of money. he ran the democratic congressional campaign committee for two cycles, so he has a lot of pull within the caucus. it's complicated a little bit by the fact that he and hoyer are friends, and they both represent the same state, they've run within the same circles. van hollen was the assistant to the speaker in nancy pelosi's last term as speaker, so that seems to be the surface that bubbles to the top as well. debbie wasserman schultz, the democratic committee chairwoman. nobody does that job for too long. she is looking for a way into leadership, but right now i hesitate to use terms like the smart money, but the smart money seems to be if pelosi wants to anoint a successor or get behind somebody, it would be van hollen. >> thank you. so that shakespearean drama makes what's going on in the senate look tame by comparison. what's going on
credit cardin won that race. >> 8th district, we can tell you the incumbent chris van hollen has won over his republican challenger. >> there are several controversial ballot measures in maryland. question 4 would grant instate tuition to illegal immigrants. now with 1% of the precinct reporting, it appears there's about a two to one lead for that measure. >> question 7, which will decide whether to expand gamble in maryland. 1% reporting, still very close. 51% of the voters are against expanding gambling. 49 #% are for it. we'll be watching this one all night. >> virginia, long lines have led to a delay in election results in the commonwealth. >> karen gray houston is live at the state board of elections with the latest. >> reporter: voting done now. we are at the fairfax county government center, which is the headquarters for the board of elections. people were voting there until just a short time ago. they always tell you if you're in line when the polls close, that they will let you vote. they did that here at 7:00, the polls closed and there were a bunch of people left trying to get
, chris van hollen, the list goes on and on, and all of the women standing here who traveled into districts. so we were thinking that it was possible, and that was. i would say one disappointment that i had was that message was at stake, was so misrepresented by the republicans that the public was confused. people would say welcome why are the democrats wanting to commit. we worked. democrats use savings of medicare to extend it for another decade, to provide benefits immediately, immediately for seniors right now. republicans took that same money and gave tax cuts to the rich, and that was the message that outside money spent a fortune to misrepresent. and that is why the election of barack obama was so very, very important to protect medicare, even the we could not get the majority. we knew what he wants, that many of the issues, affordable care, medicare, et cetera were protected. so we have a different view of what happened that day. you saw some of the members that we elected, the intellect that we brought in here. so it's not about quantity so much for us as the quality
in all this. i commend all of my colleagues, mike leaders, steny hoyer, -- chris van hollen, the list goes on. all the women who traveled. we were thinking it was possible, and it was. i would say the one disappointment that i had was that medicare message that was at stake was so misrepresented by republicans that the people were confused. people said, why did the democrats want to cut medicare? we did not. we used the savings of medicare to extended for another decade and provide benefits immediately for seniors right now. republicans took that same money and gave tax cuts to the rich. that was a message that outside money spent a fortune to misrepresent. that is why the election of barack obama was so very important. to protect medicare -- even though we could not get the majority, we knew when he won that many of the issues, affordable care, medicare, were protected. we had a different view of what happened that day. we saw some of the members that we elective, the intellect we brought in here. it is not about quantity for us so much as the policy of leadership, the quality of our
schultz, chris van hollen, steny hoyer would be in line. th and there is a whole layer right underneath and rahm emanuel would have been. they are cooling their heels right now. fenty does not want to go back to california. her family would like to go back. she might still around again because -- she raised $215 million. she is the house's biggest fund- raiser. >> we will end up with a more polarized congress. steny hoyer is more moderate. he is an institutional -- has been around for decades and represents a lot of the new democrats. the big question will be, will party, a caucus dominated by liberals and i would say democrats are much more liberal than your average democrat around the country. will they tolerate steny hoyer who they do not see as one of their own? they see him as a compromiser. >> the white house has been ignoring -- democrats have been an afterthought. if they had a leader, there would have more muscle. >> one thing that i find interesting to watch is when you can step back and look at the bigger picture, you have a house that is not budging and testing republican. w
